Cookbook Review: Vegan Ice Cream: Over 90 Sinfully Delicious Dairy-Free Delights

About the book:
This revised edition of Vice Cream features more than 90 delicious ice cream recipes using all-vegan ingredients like nuts, dates, coconut milk, maple syrup, and fruit, plus recipes for raw vegan ice creams and sauces.

Whether you’re vegan, lactose intolerant, or following a dairy-free diet, you don’t have to miss out on one of the world’s favorite desserts. Although ice cream substitutes are available, none of them achieves the richness of the real thing or offers the breadth of delicious flavors—until now. Vegan Ice Cream offers decadent frozen alternatives that don’t rely on milk, cream, or refined white sugar. Instead, these luscious recipes use nut milks, fresh fruit, and natural sweeteners to create simple and inventive ice cream flavors, from old favorites like Chocolate Chip and Strawberry to exotic creations such as Pecan Pie, Pomegranate, Kiwi Mandarin, PiƱa Colada, Chai, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Gingersnap, and many more.

This fully revised edition now features more than 90 recipes, including raw vegan ice creams and sauces, and full-color photography throughout. From the very first taste, you’ll be astonished at just how tasty and rich vegan ice cream can be. So make room in your freezer, and never miss out on the joys of ice cream again.

Reviewing Free Apps

I've gotten a bunch of free apps from Amazon's Appstore for Android, so I've decided to share my thoughts on some of my newer favorites.

I heard about this game from Apple users who loved the game, so I'm glad it's finally available on Amazon and that it works perfectly on my Kindle Fire HD. :) It's so much fun to play Phrase Friends with people I know as well as random opponents. I recommend this app for anyone that enjoys word games and/or games like Wheel of Fortune. Fun game!


I was looking for a good "notebook" app and ColorNote has been really useful so far. I've used it several times for writing reviews and other things. I haven't used the checklist option much, but from what I can tell it's great if you have a use for it. I like how you can change the color of the notepad and the calendar is nice. I also love how you can archive the notes you are done with so the main page isn't filled with old notes. I love this app!

Adobe Reader

This app is really useful for me. It's a great app to download and read PDFs on. There have been a couple documents that didn't work on the Kindle Fire itself, which is why I got this app. It works great and I love it!

Just Had To Share This Video - It Made Me Laugh!

I've been really absent (again) from this blog, BUT I plan on being back soon with a post showing some of the recipes I've tried this past summer. :D

In the meantime, I wanted to share this video with you - it really made me laugh! Be warned, though, the song gets stuck in your head. :)

Anyway, hope you like it and feel free to share your thoughts in a comment below.

Music Review: The End is Where We Begin by Thousand Foot Krutch

Okay, I'm pretty sure this is now my favorite TFK CD. While I still love the other CDs of theirs I have, The End is Where We Begin is so great and fantastic that I'd say it is my favorite so far.

Among other genres, I love Christian rock and The End is Where We Begin is definitely that! There are a few slower songs (So Far Gone, Be Somebody, and All I Need To Know), but mainly this album is rock.

I love so many (if not all) of the songs on this album, but my favorites are probably So Far Gone, All I Need To Know, The End is Where We Begin, War of Change, and Fly on the Wall.

I've listened to this CD on my iPod so many times and am still not tired of it - it is that good! The lyrics to many of the songs speak to me, especially the lyrics from So Far Gone.

The End is Where We Begin is just another reason why Thousand Foot Krutch is one of my favorite bands! This is a fantastic CD that I definitely recommend if you like rock music.

*I won a copy of this CD. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*

Product Review: Earth Science - Purifying Facial Masque Mint Tingle

Photo via Amazon.
I'll admit, when I first tried this facial masque, I was a little shocked at the color (blue) and afraid it might dye my face blue! Luckily, it came off easily and I was anxious for naught. :)

I have somewhat oily skin and find this to be a great product! It appears to reduce the oil and somewhat clear my complexion when I don't overuse it (at most three times a week) and follow up with Clarifying Herbal Astringent.

It makes my face tingle (in a good way) and I absolutely love this product! I definitely recommend it!

Find it on Amazon
Find it on Lucky Vitamin
